Remote Desktop connection black screen Window 10

Many users are facing the black screen with remote desktop after upgrading their computers to Windows 10 May update 2019.

I upgraded my secondary machine from 1809 to 1903. When I access it now using Remote Desktop all I get is a black screen in the RDP windows. I then upgraded my primary machine to 1903 hoping that would help, but no. Fortunately I also have GoToAssist installed so I was able to log into the secondary machine that way and checked for updates, still no help. Finally I reverted it back to 1809 and Remote Desktop once again works. I could keep using GoToAssist but RDP over my local LAN is much faster. As long as this version as been (more or less) gold before going public, I can’t possibly be the first one with this issue. It’s no big deal to me that my secondary is running 1809, it’s primarily a file server, but upgrading would be nice. Granted, that secondary system is an older Core2 Quad, but at 3.3GHz and 8GB of memory and a SSD, it’s plenty fast enough. I suppose I could try a different video card, but it shouldn’t be necessary for a feature update. Anyone have some insight into why RDP isn’t working. I’ve already been through all the “guesses”. πŸ™‚
